Syndra Buffs Confirmed for Next Patch!

10 comments
A few hours ago, Champion Designer Meddler confirmed that the Syndra buffs on PBE will be going live. He hasn't explicitly said that the numbers will be identical, but the essence of what they're trying to do will remain the same:
Regarding the upcoming changes we're primarily looking to add a bit of extra power to her mid to late game, hence the boost to her ult at max rank (level 16+) and the improved E CD (level 14+ assuming it's maxed third, or level 8+ if people start maxing it second). Quite agree she's strong in lane, that's something we don't want to buff, she does fall off a bit more than desired late game however, even accounting for that early strength. Source
For reference, he's most like referring to this buff from the last PBE patch:

  • Transcendent now grants +75 Range to Unleashed Power at max rank
  • Scatter the Weak cooldown decreased to 18/16.5/15/13.5/12 from  18/17/16/15/14
Personally, I think it seems like these buffs are spot on, and I think just might bring her into competitive play more frequently. Syndra's never been a weak champion in lane, and tends to do very well in a 1v1 situation. Her late game's not *terrible* either, but just seems a little lacking for how much effort/skill it takes to get her spells off properly.

Hopefully these balance changes put her somewhere we can all enjoy!

We're heading in the right direction!

What do you think about the Syndra? Will these buffs make her too strong or still not strong enough? Comment below!

  1. I swear I do more as Ahri with the same AP in late game.. And Ahri is no longer god tier pick in damage.

  2. I love to play Syndra, she has amazing damage and I think those buffs aren't really needed.

  3. As a Syndra player myself, I'm excited. I agree, I think the buffs are perfect, especially her ulti range increase. I build her with Muramana and basically ALL of her damage is loaded onto her ulti with my build – the range increase will be very helpful for assassinating those key targets without throwing myself into a high-risk situation.


    Either way, agreed: Great laning ability, limited teamfight/late-game power. Very excited to see the buffs go live.

  4. Okay. These buffs will : Make Syndra overpowered AS HELL
    I play Syndra a lot and stomp hard. She doesnt need buff's.
    This N person who builds Murumana on her obviously doesnt know what a Syndra is and can't play her cuz her skill cap is high, so she blames it on her and says she needs a buff.

    And this will make her need to get nerfed because riot is fuckign retarded and doesnt overstand that doing this will make her overpowered and a dominant mid character and she will get nerfed harder than irelia, rendering her useless just like this fucking cunt ass riot stupid shit fucked up urgot beyond belief.

    they are needed, so bad, as a syndra lover <3 she lacks in late game, she hardly had any, i think that the radius on the alt will be soooo handy!

    I think she definitely needs these buffs but they still aren't enough. I use syndra a lot and she is pretty strong but a large amount of the common champs with gap closers just completely crush her..
    Come on, all skill shots and they're afraid to give her even a workable amount of strength? I realize that her kit could potentially be unfairly devastating but its not...not even close...
    And if she really doesn't need these buffs than why is she so underplayed and almost every ranked game i see her in i just see her get eaten alive 90% of the time...?
